I Know I Keep Asking, But …

chimpbed.jpg This is a picture of a chimp named Jaybee. I went to the Save the Chimps website and saw this picture. He’d been living in a windowless cage for years, while horrible things were done to him. “Upon taking over the Coluston Foundation in September 2002, Save the Chimps founder Carole Noon discovered Jaybee alone in a small cage making a “nest” out of leftover monkey chow, arranging the small biscuits in a circle around himself before lying down. Dr. Noon’s heart broke and she immediately got Jaybee a bed sheet. Jaybee was thrilled; it seemed that he had ceased expecting both kindness from humans and the most basic physical comforts. Jaybee made a nest with the sheet and having no reason to expect he would ever receive another one, refused to give it up for three days (he kept the sheet clean and dry).”

I mean for the love of God. I think it’s our job to take care of the creatures of the earth. If you can please donate to Save the Chimps.

It’s Sad When An Animal is Possessed

Possessed.jpg I’m posting this to show that I am not the only one who loves my pets even when they are evil. Here is Marianne with Schlomo, who is clearly possessed and about to chew her arm off, but does she care? No. She still loves him. Losing an arm is just the price of love.

Reasons to be Happy – the TV Version

“Bones will make six fresh segments and might get a supersized order for next season.” (I cut and pasted that from somewhere.)

The whole “I’m fucking Matt Damon” and “I’m fucking Ben Affleck” thing. Very funny.

Jon Stewart bringing Marketa Irglova back out at the Oscars and then her lovely speech.

American Idol is past the auditions and up to the good part.

Oh and the writer’s strike is over, of course.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which was good to begin with, is getting even better. This show was out of left field for me and a nice surprise.

Feed Us or The Work is Shredded

When it gets close to dinner time they hop up and keep me company, in case I forget. The time they start hovering gets earlier and earlier, and over the years I’ve broken down, to the point where “dinner” is now at 4:30. They get a snack at 7:30 because of course they can’t go without food from 4:30 until the next morning. I am so trained.

My Friends Are So Pretty

From left to right, first we have the happy couple, Christopher and Ellen, then Brad and Anne, and finally Marianne. Everyone always says ‘the bride looked gorgeous,’ except Ellen really did and here is proof. I mean come on, look at her. (I had the best dress after Ellen. Strangers came up to me to compliment the dress. I think it’s because 98% of the women wore black or some other dark color and the yellow just stood out. I was like a spring flower in winter.)

A Dress I Can Possess!

Yellow3.jpg I’m going to a wedding in a half an hour and at noon I realized I hadn’t given any thought to what I would wear. What is wrong with me?? So I ran out to find a dress.

Everything I tried on was too low cut. Finney recently scratched me and with these low cut dresses you can see all the scratches and I looked like “crazy cat lady.” I decided I would just go with my “fall-back” dress. I came home, pulled out the fall-back dress, and saw that I must have had a really good time the last time I wore my fall-back dress because it’s a mess and completely unwearable. So I had to run back out at 3pm for a 6pm wedding.

I went back to Anthrpologie for this. I saw it when I was on my way out before, but I had already decided on the fall-back dress and so I kept going. Everything about it is perfect! It’s yellow, my new favorite color! And I have all the right jewelry! The universe is being so nice to me lately.

So, now I have to quick put on the finishing touches and go!
